Stitching requires significant device resources, and not all iPad models are capable of this.
For best results, Teradek strongly recommends using the iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st or 2nd generation) or the iPad Pro 10.5-inch.
The following devices are compatible with the Sphere for stitching purposes, but have varying hardware capabilities and subsequent restrictions on the performance of the app.
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd generation, 2017)
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (1st generation, 2015)
- iPad Pro 10.5-inch
Recommended but not advised:
- iPad Pro 9.7-inch
- iPad 9.7-inch (5th generation, 2017)
- iPad Air 2
NOTE: not advised / not recommended models will need to have the encoding and streaming settings reduced.
All prior iPad models are not compatible and not supported by Teradek for stitching purposes.
This includes the iPad Air, iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4, and all versions of the iPad Mini including the iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, and iPad Mini 4.
Local monitoring on additional iOS devices -- iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch -- is available in the same Sphere app.
These devices can view the stream that is generated by the iPad performing the stitch when they are on the same local network.
